After Super Tuesday wins, Clinton and Trump face new challenges

With Super Tuesday votes showing Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump with generous leads, Democrats are realizing Trump's perceived political weaknesses actually make him stronger. So what should the next strategic move be for both parties?

It was the busiest day of the U.S. primary season.  Last night's Super Tuesday results solidified Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton as front-runners to their parties' presidential nominations, winning seven states.

And now the Democrats and Republicans face new challenges in how they strategize their campaigns heading to the November election.
